Abstract
Within the realm of information operations, computer network defence (CND) focuses on managing the vulnerabilities and risk inherent in all computer networks. While much of the current research in the field of CND situational awareness (SA) is focusing on a bottom-up approach of how to define meaning out of the abundance of sensor information, DRDC has done work in defining the information requirements for CND SA from a top-down approach. The Joint Network Defence and Management System (JNDMS) is a Technical Demonstrator Project (TDP) implementation of a service that will provide this situational awareness; however, the focus is on wired networks. The question which this report addresses is: What is important for situational awareness in a wireless network and how does it differ from that of a wired network?
